My Approach

“That  nothing is static or fixed, that all is fleeting and impermanent, that is the first mark of existence.” Pema Chodron

In a post pandemic world, we are more intimately aware of the fact that everything in life is always changing. Any attachment to things staying the same is futile.

Resilience is defined as “the capacity to withstand or to recover quickly from difficulties.”  It is also associated with “elasticity and springing back into shape.

These definitions only speak to surviving not thriving.

If we are always just trying to keep our proverbial heads above water, how are we ever to access true happiness and joy? In order to thrive we need to create stability from within.  As Stephen Covey says “it’s an inside job.” In creating this internal anchor within we are truly able tochart forward in an intentional and resilient way.

This framework incorporates the physical, emotional, environmental nutritional and spiritual factors that lead towards well-being.  I work with a foundation the mind-body-spirit connection which views physical and mental health as intimately intertwined.  My work incorporates Buddhist and positive psychology along with mindfulness meditation, yoga and various other skills.

Being a trained nutrition coach, I also utilize key research on the gut-brain connection to inform how our diet is intimately linked to our emotional stability and overall well-being.

My style of working with people combines the warmth and humor of my personality with over 25+ years of professional experience. As I walk my talk, the personal becomes the professional.  I allow for authenticity in all areas of my life as I believe we are best served when we can all be free to be ourselves.
